BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: A COUNTRY LIFE

BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY: A COUNTRY LIFE

Perhaps not as rural as Paula’s lovely example of rural photography, but this part of New England is far from metropolitan. We have the basic stuff: roads and electricity, but that’s pretty much “it” for infrastructure.

Need water? Dig a well. Trash to haul? Hire a truck. No tall buildings. One stop light, only engaged certain hours of the day. No public transportation. No sidewalks except in the middle of the village.

Country roads, trees, cows, horses, chickens, and goats. Wild turkeys who don’t seem to know they are wild.

Swans swim in the rivers, ponds, and canals. In the winter, the world turns white. In summer, it’s a sea of green. Today, it’s black & white.

  1. This is a lovely place to live in. The feel of rural is best perceived in the first one. Thank you, Marilyn. It is really beautiful in your monochrome captures.

        1. Like many small towns, it’s one north-south road and one east-west road. Where they cross is the middle of town. When they dig it up, you can’t get there from here. I mean, you really can’t. A single little bridge goes out … and you can’t get there anymore.

            1. And it frequently is, especially because when one of the bridges falls apart and closes, getting from one town to another can be really difficult. Most of our towns have one road in, one road out. Main Street is IT. That’s why I wish they’d stop goofing around with little repairs and deal with those bridges. Many of them … maybe most of them … are in bad shape.
